SmallBusinessNews Launches Small Business Directory

Tuesday, February 12th, 2008

SmallBusinessNewz, a resource for professional business information dedicated to bringing the best business information on the net, launched the Small Business Directory today. The Small Business Directory is a free, hand-edited directory that promotes businesses which provide resources for other businesses. Submit Your Website to the Small Business Directory here.

The Small Business Directory is a human-edited directory focusing on resources that can help aid in the success of small businesses.

This is not your everyday catch-all directory full of spammy sites. We monitor this one to ensure that it remains a helpful resource to find information and help related to a wide variety of business topics.

The Small Business Directory is currently divided into 44 categories, but this number will likely grow in the future as the directory itself grows, lending itself to even more niche categories.

Categories range from Brick and Mortar and Signage to eCommerce and Search Engine Marketing.

We are always open to submissions from those who offer a site that can be useful to someone starting and/or operating a business. This is not a place to submit any site you may have. Spammers need not apply.

So if you run “Alfie’s Donut Shop”, this is not the place to submit your site. You may, however find the directory useful for finding information and advice to help you run your donut shop more successfully.

web site redesign

How do you know when it’s time for a redesign of your business web site? If your business web site gets targeted traffic, makes you money, or provides leads, does that mean you don’t need a redesign? Not exactly. Web technology changes almost daily. Even if your web site is only a few years young, there are things that you can do and add to it to make it even better. While there are no specific guidelines for knowing when the time is right for a redesign, you can ask yourself a few questions that will give you some help with the decision.


5 Mistakes Small Business Owners Typically Make with their Web Sites

Friday, November 16th, 2007

We see a lot of web sites as a web design company. It’s part of the job. It should be part of the job for any web design company, actually. If we’re not doing the research on the competition, or learning what really makes a web site effective by keeping up with the best practices, then we’re going to be left in the dust.

Thankfully, that’s not us, and it shouldn’t be you. As a small business owner, you might be in the position where you have to build and maintain your own web site. That’s a challenge for most, and while we’ve seen some respectable work from the part-time small business owner / part-time webmaster, most of them fall short on the “Web Site Management 101” score card.
